Cone 06 low fire glazes...black (Noir) with Christmas Red trailed across..Fun things happen where the red and black meet.

I've had similar results. It's been a while though, as I stipped using Christmas Red, and went with Brilliant Red. I found the Christmas Red could be iffy, in certain circumstances and turn white in spots.

on the subject of low fire (cone 04) glazes, is it possible to make a floating blue in this firing range?  The only ones I have seen have been cone 5-6 or higher.

Continental Clay, makes a "Federal Blue" that looks similar to that, when applied thick enough.

not really looking for a commercial glaze but rather I would like a recipe for making my own cone 04 glaze.

I'm still green, when it comes to glaze mixing, but can't you add more flux to a high fire glaze, to get it to work as a low fire?
